- NEW YORK, NY, October 18, 2007 - Cosmetic surgery has many benefits - the most obvious being the physical enhancement that occurs. But our physical appearance is rooted deeply in our inner thoughts, feelings, intellect, goals and desires.
In our daily lives - from work to social engagements - we attend to our bodies like gardens, not only maintaining health, but creating a pleasant appearance. We -"dress up" for important events, we get our hair and nails done, we wear make-up, cologne or perfume, earrings, hats, etc. We strive to not only be presentable, but to have our outward appearance reflect our sense of pride in our physical selves. We "groom and primp" out of respect for our bodies and out of a need to present an attractive, confident, together person who is ready to take on challenges.
When we do not do these things, we may feel sloppy, unmotivated, or less willing to handle tough tasks. When we are not completely comfortable with our bodies, our self-confidence levels can drop. The effect of cosmetic surgery, for many, can be compared to achievements such as losing weight. Those who've tried and lost a few pounds feel rejuvenated, sexier, and more confident because seeing physical changes can be very rewarding. After cosmetic surgery
, the physical changes that occur can be nothing short of inspiring.
For example, in some patients who slim down a bit using liposuction
, they see real progress, are inspired to take it to the next level, and actually find renewed courage to lose excess weight on their own. For women who have always been self-conscious about their breasts, a breast enlargement
may help renew their body image, providing confidence with the opposite sex or the courage to wear sexy clothing. Patients with facial rejuvenation procedures performed like facelift
or eyelid lift may be more confident in business and social situations, and may actually become more physically active because they feel younger.
Beauty is more than skin deep. For many cosmetic surgeons
, each procedure is an opportunity to help the patient reveal his or her true beauty. Those who have been uncomfortable with their appearance for many years are looking to renew their look and reinvent themselves - and the surgeon's job is to not only create aesthetically pleasing results, but to create results that showcase and highlight a patient's unique personality and attributes.

and facial rejuvenation procedures.
